Skywalker Day

How would you like to visit the world class SkySound recording studios where films and sound effects spanning from Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, and countless other film, TV, and game music has been recorded and produced?
At SkySound studios, you can work up close and personal on the legendary Sound Stage with the world’s best sound and recording engineers. Skywalker Sound’s staff of sound designers and re-recording mixers have either won or been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Sound and Best Sound Editing every year since Star Wars in 1977. Skywalker Sound has won 15 Academy Awards and received 62 nominations.

Each November, members of MSYO and Crescendo orchestras can spend a day recording and enjoying the grounds at beautiful Skywalker Ranch in Nicasio. Students earn money for their trip through the annual Practice-a-thon. Past projects include Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition: Baba Yaga and The Great Gate of Kiev with MSYO (view on YouTube here), and Offenbach’s Ballet Parisien Valse and Finale, with Crescendo (view on YouTube here). Join us for this exciting opportunity!
